Fall Theme: a-England Lancelot and OPI Warm & Fozzie

I'm back with my second post!  See, I have a huge "back log" of photos, because I've been taking pictures of my nails for a while now.  This is what I wore for Thanksgiving!

I got this idea from a manicure Cristina at Let Them Have Polish did for Thanksgiving last year.  Here's hers.  LTHP was the first blog I decided I needed to see all the time.  It's still my favorite, check her out!  More after the jump...

For this one I used a base of a-England Lancelot.  It's not black, I promise.  BUT, it might as well be.  The only time it's at all evident that it isn't black, is next to a true jet black, like a-England Camelot.  Here is Lancelot, two coats, no top coat.  The formula is fantastic. 

When that was pretty dry, I sponged OPI Warm & Fozzie on the tips (with a round makeup sponge I cut into a little rectangle shape).  Now, W&F looks horrible on my nails by itself, but I really, really loved it this way - the pink and copper glitter shows up better. 

I almost left it alone, in fact I wore it like this for a day before I added a stamp using Bundle Monster image plate #309 (BM309).  My stamping color is China Glaze Delight.  Delight is from the Romantique collection and I have two other polishes from that collection:  Passion and Harmony.  They're great for stamping!  I got two of them from Trans Design, Inc. - it's cheap! a lot less expensive (even with shipping) than your regular retail store.

There you have it, my Fall/Thanksgiving mani!  Hope everyone had a spectacular Friday!!
